Teacher of the Week


Panhandle Educators Federal Credit Union Teacher of the Week

Sara Patton, Marine Science, J.R. Arnold High School

A co-worker nominated Ms. Patton for all the extracurricular work she does for many students. She is a fantastic role model for high school and middle school students alike. “Ms. Patton understands that learning is most often sparked through hands-on, interactive lessons and real world experiences. Whether it's using playing cards to teach math or taking students to Gulf World, she will do whatever is necessary to engage students in learning. She teaches science at Arnold during the day and in the afternoon, she is the Site Coordinator for the LEAD Coalition and participates in the GCSC 21st Century After School programs at Everitt and Jinks. Students love Ms. Patton because they learn so much from her.”
